  2010 Artifacts from the Ages

The Museum of Geology has been on the School of Mines campus since its founding in 1885. In the last 125 years the museum has collected, produced, and commissioned many pieces of art that illustrate the natural history of the region. Many of the artworks on exhibit in the Apex Gallery have never before been seen by the general public. These include works produced by professional artists such as Dan Varner and R. Bruce Horsfall, and works produced by museum staff and SD Mines students such as Margie B. Swift and Alice Beebe. Natural history illustrations bring the past to life and excite the imagination to wonders of a world long gone.
